West Roxbury (Massachusetts)
Images of America Series

by Anthony Mitchell Sammarco

Copyright 1997, Arcadia Publishing
128 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
West Roxbury, located along the scenic Charles River, is a community of tree-lined streets and panoramic views, which has undergone tremendous changes since its incorporation as a town in 1851. Formerly known as "Westerly" or "South Street," West Roxbury has grown from a largely rural area, accessible only by train, into a charming neighborhood of Victorian homes that still offers many of the same advantages that attracted people a century ago - the quietness of small town life, with the attractions of big city living just a short distance away.

West Roxbury is also the former home of Brook Farm, a utopian community founded by Reverend Ripley. Brooke Farm was a center of literary achievement that attracted such foremost thinkers of the nineteenth century as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Horace Greeley.

In West Roxbury, author and historian Anthony Sammarco shows the many changing faces of the town, from its days as the location of Brook Farm to its development as a social and cultural center that still flourishes today. West Roxbury will interest both the lifelong resident and the first time visitor to the area, and will surely delight readers for generations to come.
